Yale University researchers, departments and labs have been using laboratory notebooks, paper or electronic, for years without formal institutional guidance. In this column, we describe how Yale University Library (YUL) and Information Technology Services (ITS) partnered to introduce a service providing institutional support for electronic lab notebooks (ELNs). This new service is offered within a suite of YUL data management services as well as within ITS' research technologies. This column looks at the process involved in choosing a product, describes support considerations, and discusses alternative steps we might have taken. It does not discuss cost issues, nor should it be considered an endorsement of any particular product or vendor.
